1/48 Hasegawa F/A 18D Hornet

Contrary to some reviews that I read, the Hasegawa Hornet is not an easy kit to assemble.  Nonetheless, it builds into an impressive looking model that looks like the real aircraft.

Since it is the first Hasegawa Hornet that I built, I made it out of the box with emphasis on the painting finish. In the process of building a well made model, I always look for the next of the kind.  This time, I pass because of the high retail price.
